So far, seems like a very affable guy. Concedes he's not a goal scorer, but has other qualities and will be there on the ice. He also talked about how he's extremely conscious of his workout regiment and health, which is why he can still play at 35 yrs old.
He's also excited about playing here, exited to be playing with Pronger again as well as the team they already have.
Good quote - "Winning is everything right now". He knows the Flyers are "right there" about winning, and told his agent he wanted to be here.
Here is a better question, who the **** cares what # Nodl wears? He sucks and is 3rd/4th line filler IMHO.
I actually hope they just leave him in the AHL and hopefully he develops some professional scoring instincts/acumen. Physically he looks like he should be able to make the NHL, but I'm not sure he's going to get there as a really useful player after last year...just a trainwreck as far as expectations were concerned in the AHL and NHL.
I missed the press conference. So, were there any questions about his nose....like, "Ian, um...your nose....um, how....how exactly....christ man, how the **** did it get like that anyway?"
Or did any media members perhaps ask him if he is aware of the striking resemblance between his nose and a dog's hind leg? Or a tornado?
You think if I send the above pic to JJ, Jonesy, and Coatesy...maybe they'll throw it up on the telestrator at some point during a broadcast and draw on those outlines? I think that'd make for good TV.
